It is not yet known how they escaped, or whether anything was stolen.

A blue BMW was also stolen from a Hazelwood Drive home between 10pm and 11pm on Wednesday, July 18.

Anyone who has any information about the car theft has been asked to ring 101 and quote crime reference 41/19426/18.

I should probably have taken the hint! Walking out into the garden recently an unprecedented flock of thirty or more crows raucously greeted me from the treetops at the bottom of my garden.

There is always something ominous about crows – they are after all carrion crows, the vultures of the bird world – always watching for scraps and weakness that might mean their next meal.
